Hard truths about disgusting acts
by Jo Litten-Taich
I believe a large part of GAP’s success is in the demeanor and affability of the staff and volunteers. I know that my simple mission of getting the facts into student’s heads is an attempt to connect in some way with each student.
“So was spreading my legs and having a human life pulled out of me.”
Reading body language was very interesting. It was a high decibel in some instances. One encounter was with a gal at Appalachian State who was very agitated by the display. She motioned to the photos and said, “This is disgusting!”
“It is,” I agreed. “So was spreading my legs and having a human life pulled out of me.” That arrested her for a moment.
I went on to give more personal testimony. That I’d defended my actions for 10 years until I woke up to the truth about what I’d done. And that it blew my mind.
She expressed outrage that we were publicly displaying offensive photos and suggested that the internet would be a more appropriate medium. I asked her how often she’d gone to pro-life sites; I explained that since there’s an information black out about abortion, we bring the truth to campuses where young people come to be informed and challenged.
She skedaddled away in the embrace of a friend. I hope her emotional reaction results in soul searching.
